Award Interpretation

All Australian businesses must undertake an award award interpretation in order to determine the minimal legal pay rates and work conditions for their workforce and industry, as determined by Fair Work Australia - the Australian industrial relations tribunal. There are around 122 different awards which covers a range of different industries and sectors.

Every industry and occupation should have its own award and your business may even have a non-standard enterprise agreement. For example a retail clothing outlet would fall under the MA000004: General Retail Industry Award 2010 or an aged care business service would fall under the MA000018 Aged Care Award
